I am sure that you will continue to be the same wonderful customers and friends that you were to the Alexanders and AKA.

I will ship product until March 5 and Jared will begin shipping on March 24, 2014. Please be patient during this transition as it will take some time to transport and r-organize inventory. We will do everything we can to ensure an easy hand-off. The website will remain virtually the same along with the Paypal store. You will continue to place orders on the AKA website. You might want to visit the Shipping and Information pages to see if there are any changes that would affect you.

My best wishes to all of you, may you play many enjoyable games and tournaments in the future.

I am working on streamlining the process and getting DC back to ontime.I will be removing AKA regulators and some other items and just selling them on akapaintball.com starting later in the month. Some minor changes will be coming for AKAs site. I will still offer all my normal services and hoping to get more of them onto DCs website. If you have any questions please send me an email at destructivecustoms@yahoo.com Still having some issues with the DC Site here. If you are having an issue with the shopping cart please send me an email along with what the error is. Please be patient with me while I am in transtion. I am still actively finishing up a few long unfinished customer projects. then on to showing you the "Ehm" milling packages. Thanks to all who have been patient.

Thanks

Jared

Since Smart Parts is technically dead, who owns the patent rights now? I really do hope that a new generation of high quality AKA markers can be produced.

Because you were probabally still in elementary school when Smart Parts tried to sue the entire paintball industry.

The Viking and Excalibur were 2 of the best markers made at that time,
But Smart Parts "Claimed" the patent on using a microswitch to fire a paintball marker, and then went full douchebag trying to enforce it.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
